Troubles With Temptation

I am having problems with temptation. I've been doing so good- exercising regularly, and eating healthy. But than, from out of nowhere- cravings have hit me. In the past 24 hours I have had three peanut butter cookies, and I am not talking about those little ones that the Keebler Elves sell. I'm talking about the ginormous ones that a local restaurant in town, the Blue Bird Restaurant, makes and sells. These things are about the size of my hand spread out. And are they ever good. But I digress. I know, I know. The best way to keep away from them is to stop buying them. My won't power, though, is having a hard time with that.
I am afraid I am going to gain weight his week when I jump on the scale at my T.O.P.S. meeting, instead of losing it. Well, maybe that would be motivation for me to stay away from those cookies.
Maybe I just need to be told, 'NO! You can't have those.'
How do you deal with temptation? What makes you push the plate away before you are really full?
See you next time on this strange journey of trying to be worthy of the title of "Biggest Loser" .

Valentine's Day- 2009

Ouch! I just saw this picture from Valentine's Day, and
it has scared me right to pieces.
I figure if I have this blog out here for everyone to see, it might help to keep me on the straight and narrow just a little bit.
So here I am, trying to lose almost a full person. My goal is to get down to a weight of 150#s. I know that will be difficult, but I have to do it.
On this blog, I am going to journal about the ups and downs of my weight loss. I will say what works for me, and what doesn't.
Feel free to come in and look around, and leave me a comment to let me know what works for you.
Hope to see you again real soon,
Donna M. Clark
